Convincing IiCtter From Obo of Mrs. Plnkham's Admirers. j No woman can look fresh nd fair who Is sufTerlnp; from displacement ot the womb.

Artificial supports make matters worse, for they tako away all tho chanca ot tho llgnmontn recovering their vigor and tone. Use strengthens ; tho ligaments havo ij jfe. n work to do.

Fonnd br a Gardener Molen from ft. IT, Glb on Abandoned br tbo Thief. In clearing tho grass near Eighty-sixth street in Central Park Just after daybreak yesterday morning Gardener Mnrtin Kavanngh now a big wicker baskot hidden behind a clump of bushos alongIdo tho Eighth avenue wall of the park. It lookod as If It bad been dropped over the wall. The basket was chockf ull of silver knives, forks, spoons, ladles, trays, fish knives, nnd other articles of dinner service each en grnvod with Initials. Ho put tbo basket on his whoclbarrow nnd trundled it to the Arsenal, where ho reported tho find to tho Sergeant. Tho latter assumed that tho silverware was stolen and telegraphed to Pollco Headquarters. Tho messngo led to tho speedy identification of tho silverware aa tho property ot H. W. Gibson, nn architect, living at 10 EastBeventy oonth street. It had been stolen somo time after midnight on Thursday from the Gibson residence. Tho property was claimed by F. A. Hammond, proprietor of the Plaza Hotel and uncle of Mr. Gibson's wifo. Tho robbery was discovered by servants at 4 o'clock yesterday morning and reported at once to tho police of tho East Sixty-seventh street station. Mr. Oibson has been ill for four months at his homo and has been In the charge of trained nurses. His wife, who ts ndnucli to." of tho proprietor of the Murray Hill Hotel, Is also sick and Is now at tbo hotel under medi cal caro. Tho sickness of tbo architect nnd his wlfo left their houso under tho entire control ot tho servants, and an Investigation by tbo detec tives showed that one of the servants had failed to fasten tho door of tbo rear extension to tbe house on going to bod on Thursday night. The silverware, which includod a gold souvontr spoon presented to Mr. Gibson's dnughter. a valunblo trinket, was kept on the dresser in tbo dining room and tho thief or thieves had no trouble In getting In and carrying it olf after tbe servants had gono to bed. Tho stolen silver was all rsturncdlaxt night, and at the houso it "fas snid that nobodr was suspoctod thero of be ing party to tho thoft. Tho police believo that onlv ono thief did tho work nnd they have no cluo to tbo pcrpetr" or. Thoy think that tho thief hml hurried through the park and had been compelled tu hidu tho bosket to escape, de tection and nrrc3t by a policeman who unex pectedly appeared In sight. JOllX A.
